A Piece of Heaven - Donna B Snow




The Christmas season passes so quickly, but honestly, Christmas is a day to remind us of the ultimate gift. That Jesus could love ME (yes, and you) so much to be willing to give His life for us. (I am so unworthy.) But I have accepted His gift, and I can only pray that I can bring that gift to others!
 I have just begun to realize that God is calling me to be a blessing (possibly calling all of us, but I can’t speak for anyone else). I recently went to a Women of Faith conference and walked away after shedding more tears than I even knew I could shed.  At first I thought it was chastisement, but by the end of the second day I realized that it was His Spirit filling that place that brought me to that point. So, I am learning to let God work through me, work in me. I am learning to be a blessing, not look for the blessing. Will you be a blessing to someone in this season of giving?
I wish I had a current story to share, although A Piece of Heaven is coming, I have no release date yet. I’m hoping for January. Watch for it!
Here’s what it’s all about:
Trina Wembly dreamt of owning a Christian coffee house for years –a Godly place where people could enjoy a good meal, and entertainment that was pleasing to God. A Piece of Heaven is that dream, and Trina the star entertainer.
Jared Larou, the construction foreman who helps design and build the coffee house, is a wounded soul with a soft heart, a soft heart that Trina is drawn to.
Trina knows God is the only one who can heal Jared’s wounded soul. Does she have the faith and patience to wait on God’s will – if it is God’s will?

Care for a peek? Here you go!

For what seemed like the hundredth time—and maybe it was, Trina stepped into the waiting area of Dared Construction. After months of meetings and hours spent going over drawings and making changes, it looked like things might finally get moving...she hoped.
Pingree, Maryland wasn’t a very large town, but their building codes seemed nearly impossible to decipher.
She wiped damp palms down her skirt.
Lord, please let this be good news and not another roadblock.
“Trina, so good to see you.” Jared said as he and Dave both stepped into the waiting area.  Jared extended his hand first and Dave nodded his greeting.
“Nice to finally meet you in person,” Dave said as he held out his hand. “I’m looking forward to getting this project off the ground, not to mention having a place we can go to relax once you open.”
Trina sighed. “I’m praying that will happen soon, too.”
Dave squeezed her hand one more time then headed toward the door. “I wish I could stay and chat, but I have to get to a meeting at another site. I’ll see you soon, I’m sure.”
Trina watched him leave then turned back to Jared as he pushed the cuffs of his dress shirt up  to his elbows as usual, showing off well muscled forearms. He looked every inch the businessman whenever she saw him in the office. What would he look like on the job site? His movements were fluid, like a dancer or a gymnast. Near six feet tall, with those broad shoulders, Trina felt herself staring.
She smiled and cleared her throat as she searched his face for a clue as to why he had called her in today. “So, good news, I hope?”
Jared’s gray eyes twinkled. “Come on back to my office. We can talk there. I have something to show you.”
“Said the spider to the fly,” she whispered to herself.

I hope you stop by to check out all of the Christmas stories that are coming out this season. Nothing like a good Christian Christmas romance. God bless you all!

A Tuscan Legacy book one - That's Amore

THAT’S AMORE A Tuscan Legacy Book 1

When Rafaele and Jayne meet again two years after dancing the night away together in Tuscany, is it a matter of fate or of faith? After deciding to take a six-month sabbatical, Italian lawyer Rafaele Rossi moves from Florence back to Villa Rossi in the middle of Tuscany, resigned to managing the family farm for his aging nonna after his father’s passing. Convinced a family get-together is what Nonna needs to lift her spirits, he plans an eightieth birthday party for her, making sure his siblings and cousins attend. The Keswick jewelry store where Jayne Austin has worked for seven years closes its doors. Jayne takes her generous severance pay and heads off to Italy—Tuscany to be precise. Choosing to leave her fate in God’s hands, she prays she’ll miraculously bump into the handsome best man she’d danced the night away with at a friend’s Tuscan wedding two years ago. She hasn’t been able to forget those smoldering brown eyes and that rich Italian accent. J…

A Tuscan Legacy book 4 - Ti Amo by Marion Ueckermann

She never wants to get married. He does. To her.
The day Alessandra Rossi was born, her mammà died, and a loveless life with the father who blamed the newborn for her mother’s death followed. With the help of her oldest brother, Rafaele, Alessa moved away from home the moment she finished school—just like her other siblings had. Now sporting a degree in architectural history and archaeology, Alessa loves her job as a tour guide in the city of Rome—a place where she never fails to draw the attention of men. Not that Alessa cares. Fearing that the man she weds would be anything like her recently deceased father has Alessa vowing to remain single. American missionary Michael Young has moved to Rome on a two-year mission trip. His temporary future in the country doesn’t stop him from spontaneously joining Alessa’s tour after spotting her outside the Colosseum. And being bold enough to tell her afterward that one day she’d be his wife. God had told him. And he believed Him. But Alessa shows …

Justice - Emily Conrad

Blurb: Jake thought he was meant to marry Brooklyn, but now she's pregnant, and he had nothing to do with it. Brooklyn can’t bring herself to name the father as she wrestles with questions about what her pregnancy means and how it will affect her relationship with Jake. If Harold Keen, the man who owns the bookstore across from Jake's coffee shop, has anything to do with it, the baby will ruin them both.
Excerpt
The door opened, and Brooklyn ducked through. The only mascara left on her face was a faint smudge below one of her eyes. That could only mean one thing: she was pregnant. She took an uncertain step toward him. He wrapped her in his arms, but even so, she’d never been further out of his reach. “I can’t do this,” she said against his shoulder. “You can.” He leaned his head to look at her face. Her closed eyes seeped tears. “We’ll do it together.” Liar. He couldn’t help her with a baby. That job belonged to Caleb. Yet, he had the sense that the promise answered his prayer. It …
